Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) is the executive editor-in-chief of a book publishing company, Colden Books, who forces her assistant Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds) to marry her in order to avoid being deported to Canada. He grudgingly accepts, under the condition that he is promoted to the position of editor. When the government investigates, the two are forced to spend the weekend with his parents in Alaska in order to sell the lie, but start to fall genuinely in love as they spend time together.
Cast: Sandra Bullock, Ryan Reynolds, Mary Steenburgen, Malin Akerman, Craig T. Nelson; Directed by: Anne Fletcher
After being banished from their homeland, Zed and Oh (Jack Black and Michael Cera), two tribesmen, embark on a journey through their ancient world. Along the way, they encounter Adam and Eve (Harold Ramis and Rhoda Griffis), Cain and Abel (David Cross and Paul Rudd), and Abraham (Hank Azaria).
In an interview regarding Be Kind Rewind, Black stated that Year One will be about two men running around in Moses’s time. He said that the movie is similar to Monty Python’s Life of Brian. Black stated that it might be fun to see all the stories of the Bible in a modern movie.
In an interview with MTV, Cera described it as a comedy set in Biblical times with Black’s character, Zed, looking for some kind of meaning for his life. Black warned viewers expecting a comedy along the lines of Ghostbusters or Knocked Up that the style of the film is much more along the lines of the Monty Python movies.
